Prepackaged Medical Kits and Trays: A Global Strategic Business Report

Follow us on LinkedIn – Trends that underscore the global healthcare industry such as strong focus on infection control and cost reductions, increased preference for less-invasive surgical procedures, and growing use of disposable medical products are favoring demand for prepackaged medical kits and trays. Sterile standard and custom procedure packs allow users to integrate components as required and minimize assembly and storage costs. Aging population and increasing number of surgical procedures are also driving demand for prepackaged medical kits. Disposable prepackaged kits and trays are a great source of cost savings as they reduce the need for expensive labor to assemble products for a procedure. The market therefore is flooded with a vast range of product solutions customized for almost every type of invasive procedure.

Custom medical kits/trays offer a cost saving solution to hospitals requiring medical supplies for set procedures carried out on a daily basis. These kits contain a wide range of tools required for medical, diagnostic, surgical, clinical lab, monitoring and life science research procedures. In addition to robust growth in standardized products, use of custom procedure trays is also witnessing an upward trend. As customized kits address diversified needs of hospitals, growth in this segment is expected to be greater than standardized medical kits. The primary function and benefit of customized medical kits is rationalization of inventory. These kits enable standardization of tools that are applied during a specific procedure, and also offer efficiency and cost benefits.

Safety is a major factor in modern healthcare. To reduce the risk of infections, healthcare societies around the globe have endorsed various regulations, which compel healthcare institutions to use standardized equipment, which include prepackaged kits and trays. Most of the modern day kits and trays are equipped with safety features such as needle sheaths and caps. Demand for general-use trays and kits is mounting mainly due to convenience, infection control, easy disposability and economical attributes of these products. Measuring pH levels, carbon dioxide, blood oxygen and electrolytes by means of blood sampling is increasing the demand for blood gas kits.
